Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a grant proposal to fund mental health services targeted towards enhancing social emotional well-being of children ages 5 years and younger at Foothill Family Service. The proposed program will provide mental health services to children who are experiencing early childhood mental health disorders, living in the San Gabriel Valley, and unable to receive services due to lack of Medi-cal insurance. A literature review was conducted to investigate the risk factors for developing mental health disorders, how symptoms are exhibited, and the effectiveness of current mental health treatments among young children. The goal of the program is to enhance their social-emotional well-being. The completion of this project required identification of a potential funding source and completion of a grant application for the proposed program. Submission and securing funds for the program was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
